This week I crossed a professional milestone! Up until now, the longest book I’ve written is Starting Point at 92K words. But my current WIP, Yanni’s Story, has breezed past that and is currently at 106K!! There’s probably another 12K to go, maybe more.
Yanni’s Story is written in three sections called Acts. Given he’s studying acting, I thought it was appropriate LOL. Each Act shows Yanni’s growth and recovery from being in an abusive relationship. I’ll share more of this when the first draft is done.
And I could split Yanni’s Story (yes, that’s the name of the book) into three separate books, and it would be more in tune with the Spencer Cohen Series (which Yanni’s world is a part of) if it were three books, but truthfully, it would read better as one book. So it will stay as one book. 🙂
I’m still aiming for a release in late Aug/early Sept. Fingers crossed my editor won’t suggest massive re-writes LOL
For my Italian readers, Cuore di Terra Rossa 3 is out today!! That’s Red Dirt Heart 3 to everyone else 😉
A reminder that I’m taking pre-orders for signed books at GRL in October, when I’ll be in Denver, Colorado!
You can find the pre-order form HERE.
Also, a HUGE thank you to my audio listeners for making Cronin’s Key such a successful release! It spent three weeks straight at #1 on LGBT audio, so thank you!!!
Okay, so I won’t be here next week, so there won’t be an update. I’ll be away with my son’s tennis but also for a bit of a family vacation as well. I’m going to try like crazy to have Yanni’s Story’s first draft done so I can have some down time. I’ve written 65K words in the last month, so my hands (and brain) would probably appreciate the break 😉
Have a fabulous week! Until then… <3
